Murray Hill Inc.
First Corporation to Run for Congress
Murray Hill Inc. is the first corporation to run for Congress in the United States. Following the recent Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission to allow unlimited corporate funding of federal campaigns, Murray Hill Inc. is exercising its constitutional right to run for office.
“Until now,” Murray Hill Inc. says, “corporate interests had to rely on campaign contributions and influence peddling to achieve their goals in Washington. But thanks to an enlightened Supreme Court, now we can eliminate the middle-man and run for office ourselves.”
Campaign Manager William Klein promises an aggressive campaign that "puts people second," or even third. The campaign’s designated human, Eric Hensal, will help the corporation conform to antiquated “human only” procedures and where necessary apply a human interface to this corporate campaign.
The campaign video has been seen more than 220,000 times on YouTube and there are more than 10,000 campaign friends on Facebook. A front-page Washington Post story was received more than 200,000 clicks on the paper's website and was picked up nationally. Mr. Klein and Mr. Hensal have been interviewed on NPR, MSNBC, Pacifica Radio, the BBC, and numerous local and national radio programs.
